“Just Say No”

Standard

Temptation. The very word sounds like something dirty. It’s known to play havoc in our life. We are all tempted by one thing or another. However, with everything we’re giving whether it be temptation, limitations, health issues or disabilities. We have a choice how we let it affect our everyday life. Temptation can be as much a bad thing as a good thing. It can make us or break us. If we fall into its prey we can become all consumed by it. Even a prisoner of its allure. On the other hand, if we are conscious enough to look at it straight on, then we can see what it has to show us about ourselves.If I want to accomplish something better for myself, but my temptations keep showing up sabotaging all my efforts. Then the temptations are there to show me what I have to stop doing. It becomes a tool for some of the most difficult lessons in our life.

So next time your tempted to eat, drink, smoke or sabotage your best efforts remember the choice is always yours. As they use to say in the 80’s, “Just say no!”

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
